Is it worth converting Django data models to Google App Engine Datastore API?

A developer has created a query intensive site for me, written with a Django backend. I'm getting ready to launch, and I was about to lease a managed dedicated server (webfaction). But then I started looking at Google Apps...
Would it be more cost effective to have the Django data models converted to Google App Engine Datastore API? I'm weighing further development costs against a monthly server lease.
And costs aside, are there any benefits a dedicated server might have over Google Engine Apps, and vice versa?
